With Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on the way later this year, Universal Pictures has now moved to announce a release date for a third Jurassic World film.
The film – which will be the sixth in the Jurassic franchise – has been confirmed for a June 11th, 2021. At present, the only other movie set for that time is an untitled animated Pixar effort which is actually released the following week.
Of course, no plot details are known whatsoever right now bar, y’know, they’ll be dinosaurs. Lots and lots of dinosaurs. Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow are returning as executive producers, and Pacific Rim Uprising’s Emily Carmichael has joined the series to pen the screenplay for this effort. She’ll team with Trevorrow on this front, with the script to come from an initial story idea from Trevorrow and longtime writing partner Derek Connolly.
In the meantime, the J.A. Bayona-directed Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom is set for a June 22nd release this year. The official blurb on that picture reads:
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful franchises in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
As ever, expect more on this third Jurassic World movie as we get it.
